A: There are too many unanswered questions to render any legal advice. "He said, she said" testimony may or may not be admissible in court proceedings. Statements by the defendant, your fiancé, are likely to be admitted into evidence, and testimony by the alleged victim may or not be admissible depending on if the alleged victim testifies in court or if the testimony is admissible under the Federal Rules of Evidence.

This is general legal advice, and I am unable to render adequate legal advice without discussing at length the facts and circumstances surrounding the matter. Good luck!
